MiICHAM factories are facing a shortage of girl labour.
Today’s youngsters prefer the office to the machine shop, they
One firm is Chrome Print Ltd., quality colour printers of Eveline Road.
They have a bright, modern factory with good working conditions but they find difficulty in getting young factory girls.
A firm’s spokesman said this week: “We have always had this problem. The type of girl suitable is between 17 and 30 prepared to stay with us permanently. But they don’t seem toexist in Mitcham.”
Mitcham’s Youth Employment Officer, Mr. G. Ellis, said it was an old problem.
“Girls today would rather work in an office,” he said.
“They think that factory work is beneath them.”
Chrome Print’s products range from colour display cards, packages and labels for cosmetic firms, to brochures and illustrated literature,
They have factories in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, U.S.A., and Italy.
They pride themselves on their fine line printings and gloss lettering.
